    Nope, haven't seen one like this. I got one of those cardboard buckets that is the size of a square tissue box. It will live in a separate compartment, with a separate opening for deposits. I'll put either a snap or a velcro piece to hold the handle out of the way, so when it's full, you just pull it out by the handle and empty it, then drop it back in & fasten it back. It'll have a flip top, with the 2 openings in it, and two hang tabs to hang it on her walker so it won't tip over.

    My friend said once I take it to her, I'll have everyone in the place wanting one like it.

    I do hope Mrs. Bratty comes home! I miss her smiling face and witty repartee!

    Would like to see what you come up with, sounds like it would be perfect. You may have a little assembly line sewing at your house.

    I may need some help with that assembly line if all goes well, lol! It's definitely something I'm going to document in case I make more.

    I've decided to break down and buy an Accuquilt Go! with my income tax refund. Heck, my boyfriend wouldn't care if I just bought it, since it keeps me out of his hair about working so much, but I feel like I need to pay for it myself because it's so expensive. Thing is, I can't decide which pack to go with. The starter pack from Accuquilt is $564, with the machine, tote, 11 dies (the 12" block starter set), and 3 mats. Downside is, it doesn't come with a 2-1/2" strip die or the mat you need for it. The mix & match starter set on Amazon is $389, also 11 dies and 3 mats, but no tote or 2-1/2" die either, and if I add just the tote, it's $462, and with the 2-1/2" die & mat it's $535. The collect em all set on Amazon (only place I found it) has the machine, all of the 17 original dies (including the 2-1/2" strip & a few for applique), tote, all 4 mat sizes, and the storage rack for $794. OR! I could buy the machine alone and add the best seller 9 die/4 mat set and the tote for $590.

    Someone was discussing this in another thread and sent someone to diecutyourfabric.com, but they don't carry any bundles. Everything is 30% off retail though. I just put in all the dies in the starter set and it would be $498 + shipping, so it's not cheaper for this, but the dies are competitive. Their site is nothing but an order form though, so you have to know what you're looking for before you go there.

    So, that's my conundrum for this Easter weekend....

    Well, I guess that solved that. My boyfriend came in & saw me looking at them and asked me if I decided yet. I started telling him the differences in the options & he said "Just get the big set and be done with it. It's $200 difference and you got a good tax refund. Buy something for yourself." So, I guess I'm getting the big set!

    oh I am going to be in so much trouble with Jan... sign me up. (hiding now). I know I said no more sign ups for me til I finish this quilt but see I have help coming on the way in May so I can always twist arms to assist me on the final push of that quilt I just wont tell them yet.. oh hell help has just seen this. oops.

    I have no idea what i will make as obviously I need to get a room assignment first I hope you get a nice turn out Dustysmom. I love the chatter as much as the suprise. I scored wonderfully last time yes yes I did. I have always wanted to try making one of those wool candle mats. go kits has so many to pick from its hard to settle on one.. then again I just like make tablemats/runners. they make me happy. wall hangings? love them. blender covers? uh no. aprons yes! oh oh want an apron someone. pick me pick me! lol. signing up nw before Jaba comes and bops my head to remind me I said NO more swaps for now. I accidentally forgot. (grin).

    You've been bopped!! I knew you couldn't resist. Naughty Brat!! Have to look around today and just fill out the sheet and send it I guess. Was waiting to see what my partner made from the last one but I'm still keeping the bench very warm, nothing in the mail. Always like those table runners, or a runner for my fireplace mantel would be nice, need a nice cover for my mixer but I don't wear aprons brat, no aprons here.
